Bringing a Moderate Security Voice to Australia
In November, one of Israel’s foremost experts on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Col. (Ret.) Shaul Arieli, came to Australia for NIF Australia. Shaul is active in the Council for Peace and Security, which represents hundreds of former senior military, security and intelligence officers, and works to promotes a sustainable political solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Over the course of a week, Shaul spoke to hundreds of people across Sydney and Melbourne, giving presentations on the current obstacles to peace, the settlement movement, and the best way Israel and the Palestinians can move forward.
Shaul was interviewed on ABC News 24’s The World program, as well as on RN Breakfast by James Carleton.
In Israel, NIF is committed to bringing respected security voices like Shaul’s into the public discourse to promote a permanent status agreement with the Palestinians as a way of strengthening Israel’s security. By bringing this message to Australia, we’re able to lead a new discourse around Israel’s relationship with the Palestinians, and rally the community to find a new way forward.
